advisor, john brennan heads to capital hill for his hearing to take over the c.i. averment. the white house has to answer some tough questions about its overseas drone program. the catalyst is a white house memo obtained that justifies american citizens. civil liberties advocates and senator ron widen tweeted today every american has the right to know that their government believes they're allowed to kill them. most americans seem to casually accept this. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones. both are msnbc political analysts. jebtle men, let's look here at carney. there was a briefing today and carney defended the president's position on drones. >> i won't talk about specific instances, but the fact is the methods that we use are designed specifically to avoid civilian casualties. i think it's fair to say that far fewer civilians lose their lives in an effort to go after senior leadership as opposed to an effort to lead a country with hundreds of thou sants of troops. >> why are you dancing around the question of whether or not we kill civilians. >> i don't think th
on the kill list, from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade. killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 civilians, as well. a world away, in remote villages, you can hear them. like a distance, muted chain saw. a dull, but deadly roar. villagers describing it this way -- "the drones are all over my brain. i can't sleep. when they're hovering over us, we're all scared." a reality we seldom see, says stanley mcchrystal, the retired general who once ran the military's drone strike program. >> if the threshold gets too low and we are too casual about it, then we will forget how much scar tissue we build up in those countries. >> reporter: general mcchrystal believes that americans should have the opportunity to know more about these secret drone wars, to weigh those benefits and risks. that rare opportunity will occur t
john pwrepb tpher -- brennan head of the c.i.a. administration. >>steve: if george bush was president and he had a program like this, democrats would be calling for george bush's impeachment. this would be a giant story every day in "the new york times." instead what you hear on the other side, crickets. there was a letter that came out yesterday. 11 senators wrote a letter to the president -- eight democrats and three republicans -- asking for questions. which is interesting, when you go back to 2007, there were 144 democrats who sent a letter to president bush to close gitmo over the torture. the hypocrisy is stunning. >>gretchen: they did come up at the press conference, jay carney, there were several reporters calling out the hypocrisy. at least they were asking questions about this issue. he had the same -- it's almost like he was reading a legal answer, because he read the same quote several times to the same question almost as if they parsed the words to make sure. because the aclu, quite frankly, is suing the government right now. the aclu usually agrees with this administrati
in to the demands of congress. and today, in a senate confirmation hearing lawmakers will grill john brennan, obama's choice to lead the cia and also an architect of the drone program and a vocal supporter. >> we conduct targeted strikes because they are necessary to mitigate an actual ongoing threat to stop plots, prevent future attacks, and to save american lives. >> but it was the killing of an american citizen in yemen that raises all the questions. u.s. drones killed u.s.-born cleric anwar al awlaki, he was tied to the terrorist plots including the underwear bomber but never charged in u.s. court. iran claims it has unlocked the encrypted surveillance images from a spy plane drone. cnn cannot independently verify the authenticity video which is running on iranian state television and youtube. >> translator: this aircraft has had many flights in countries around iran and operations that have taken place in pakistan, this aircraft has provided guidance. >> the u.s. has never confirmed that iran shot down the drone, only it somehow vanished over iran. president obama asked iran to return it but t
to the sue sudanese mixes factor. >> john brennan who has been nominated to dram ia is dunnedmentally missing the point. this is a huge problem and not just a problem for israel. a problem for other states in the region friendly to the united states. the oil producing countries of the persian gulf. and ultimately a threat to the people of egypt and us. >> i don't think the president of egypt getting cozy with ahmadinejad is anything but you a disaster. a very bad sign. >> certainly an indication about the overall failure of our policy in the middle east, no question about it. >> greta: ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: coming up, accused killer jodi arias taking the stand. testifying about the tart of her affair with the man she is accused of slaughtering in the shower. you will see her testimony for yoursome coming up. plus, governor chris christie plus, governor chris christie takes on one of his biggesttttt she knows you like no one else. and you wouldn't have it any other way. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadala

, with martin dempsey, and john brennan, you were talking a lot about drones. there's been a lot of talk about the americans using drones against people linked to al qaeda. american citizens. you look at a case like this, and dorner, is this a case where you would think some time soon that we would use drones against american citizens, a case like this, where he's trying to kill people? >> no, i don't think so. and i don't think we'll ever get there. and i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy combatant, no matter what their citizenship is, is longstanding in this country. and world war ii is the best example, where somebody would join forces with the enemy to fight the united states. they no longer have the benefit of the u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're an enemy combatant on foreign land, fighting the battle of the united states. so he was belligerent. in the al awlaki case, he's a belligerent to the united states. that's very different than having a united states citizen in the united states. they hav
